こんにちは。 As a famous novelist, 著名な小説家である彼女は、 she could buy herself jewelry, expensive clothes, a fur coat, her own car. 買おうと思えば、宝石だろうが、高価な衣服だろうが、毛皮のコート、自分専用の車、何だって買えるのだ。 All that separated her from such riches was the time it would take to transfer what was in her head to the pages of the exercise-book 彼女をそうした富から隔てているものは、頭の中にある観念を、具体的な実行計画に移し替えるに必要な時間だけだった。 time which her mother's unexpected visit was causing her to lose. 彼女の母親が不意に訪問してきたために、彼女が失いつつある時間があればできることだったのだ。 以上、大雑把な訳です。exercise-bookの意味は少し自信がありません。 ご参考になさって下さい。

    以下の英文の翻訳お願いできませんか? (1)I had a sister who had diabetes. She died when she was 39. If she had lived a century ago, she would have been dead by the age of 14. Had she been born today, she probably would have lived a full life because gene therapy would soon be able to replace her defective genes. My parents told me Andrea had diabetes when I was a high school student in California. And later, I learned Andrea would have the disease forever and world be taking shots every day of her life so she could live. I knew it was serious. Without insulin, Andrea's cells would die even though she had plenty of sugar in her blood. Each day she would measure her sugar level and then inject insulin into her thigh. (2)Time passed, and I went to Colorado College. Andrea went to the University of Southern California. I think that USC was a good choice for her. She went to classes, parties, and maintained her California blonde good looks. She graduated, married a lawyer-to- be, adopted a child because of repeated miscarriages due to her diabetes, and got divorced--- a typical American story except for the diabetes. (3)Andrea died on the operating table at the age of 39. It was cardiac arrest, not an uncommon fate for diabetics whose cardiovascular systems were compromised. She had visited me to say goodbye ---except I did not know it. (4)One day Andrea came to Buffalo. We soon learned she was going blind. She told us that only an operation would help her eyes. Her physicians did not hold out much hope because of her lifelong treatment with insulin; although it had saved her life, it had also caused malfunctioning in her circulatory system. Her eyes were only part of the problem; her entire cadiovascular system was compromised. The operation, in fact, would be dangerous. (5)My sister was adamant. She had tried going to classes designed to help patients who were going blind. She said she would rather be dead than blind. She was going forward with the operation, which would be in a couple of weeks. (6)Andrea, along with the rest of my famiy,remainedin California while I was moving about the country getting an education, as well as being a wife and mother of children. I settled on the two opposite side of the country in Buffalo, New York.
